Dana Manson works as a buyer’s agent and marketing specialist. Her philosophy has always been that real estate is not just a home buying or selling business, it is a “people” business. Beyond having the knowledge and experience, being a buyer’s agent is about listening, understanding, communicating and helping people make the best decisions they can given their set of circumstances.
The idea of being in an industry that allows her to serve people and make a difference was one of things that drew her to real estate in the first place. After graduating with a marketing degree from Belmont University in Nashville, she worked in the corporate world in Nashville as a marketing executive for many years. In 1994, she took her marketing experience and desire to be of service and launched a successful real estate career in Nashville. She decided to take some time off to raise a family when her husband’s job relocated them to Orlando and eventually to the Atlanta area.
Dana has been a resident of Forsyth County now for 5 years and has revitalized her real estate career with Christy’s team. She is constantly researching the market and is eager to share her knowledge of the areas ever-growing communities. She has experience working with all levels of buyers, including first time home, families moving to larger homes or relocating to the area and empty nesters wanting to downsize. It’s all about people and her goal is to help her clients find the perfect house while building lasting relationships.
After working as a data analyst, Jacob joined The Scally Carter Team as a buyer’s agent. Knowing the importance of each home purchase, Jacob listens to his clients needs and wants and communicates each part of the home buying process to ensure his clients are well taken care of.

Originally from Michigan, Jacob moved to Atlanta in 2017, where he lives in Decatur with his wife and dog. Real estate is not new to Jacob, who grew up on job sites with his dad who remodeled homes. When not helping clients, he spends his free time walking the historic neighborhoods, reading, and working on his house.

WORK WITH ONE OF THE HIGHEST PRODUCING TEAMS IN FORSYTH COUNTY
“Christy worked so hard for us! We had 20 showings and multiple offers the first weekend we listed the house and she helped us navigate through all of that with the precision of an air traffic controller! She was always available to take our call, text or email. She responded immediately every time. Christy was a delight to work with!"
– Cassie Hilderbrand
"...From talking us through the best home arrangement for showings, to sitting down on closing day, we felt confident in Christy’s expertise...”
– Nicki Poe
"Christy Scally was referred to me because I was selling a small property in Gainesville. The property was worth very little and her commission would be paltry compared to any other property. Yet, Christy put in more effort than the agent that sold our last house, was in constant contact with me, was available when I needed her, and kept finding buyers even as we faced multiple complications. I highly recommend her services!"

Christy sets the bar very high for all other agents. Being familiar with Real Estate myself I was reluctant to using any agent. In hindsight working with Christy was the best decision I made. This is evident in her professionalism, loyalty, care, and commitment to her sellers. From the first day I met Christy she makes you feel reassured the entire process from beginning to end will have her undivided attention and expertise. Simply stated — she does what she says and exceeds all expectations. I highly recommend Christy and know I will be working with her and her associates in the future.
– Greg Taylor
“…She kept me in the loop on everything and did follow ups on people that did not leave there opinions. Very happy with her hard work and would tell anybody that wants a go getter agent that she is the one for sure.”
– Kirk Hughes
